Posted Breed: Patterdale Terrier (Fell Terrier) / Mixed (short coat). This chocolate Patterdale terrier blend is Penny! Penny is a spicy little gal that is 1-2 years young. She LOVES the water and to swim in the pool at her Foster home. She enjoys the company of small to medium sized dogs but is intimidated by larger dogs. Her ideal home will be feline free, as she's not much of a fan of kitty-cats. Her Foster Momma says s he loves to play tug o war and snuggle with her human and if you give her a pillow and a blanker to sleep on she is in heaven. Penny is also crate trained. She has been known to be nippy if she feels threatened so a home with children over 5 would be the best fit.

A.K.A. : A mongrel, mixed-breed dog
Overview: A mongrel, mutt, or mixed-breed dog, is a dog that is not the result of breeding within an existing breed or to modify or create a breed and belongs to no breed. In the United States, the term "mixed-breed" is a favored synonym over "mongrel" among many who wish to avoid negative connotations associated with the latter term. The implication that such dogs must be a mix of defined breeds may stem from an inverted understanding of the origins of dog breeds. Pure breeds have been, for the most part, artificially created from random-bred populations by human selective breeding with the purpose of enhancing desired physical, behavioral, or temperamental characteristics. Dogs that are not purebred are not necessarily a mix of such defined breeds. Therefore, among experts and fans of such dogs, "Mongrel" is still the preferred term.

More About Mutt Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 150.00. Meet Sebastian, he is a 4-5 year old Chi. He is the biggest cuddle bug. He can be a little selective with people. He loves to give kisses and loves his belly rubbed. Sebastian is tiny but fast little guy, he's quick to call dibs for snuggle time and just loves to be loved on. Sebastian does well with older children but not with younger or jitter children. He prefers to be indoors and will bark to be let back inside once he's all finished up outside. He is a monkey see monkey do, so if he sees another dog chase cats then he doesn't want to be the odd guy out. Otherwise he seems to get along fine with cats. He doesn't do well with larger dogs but is ok as long as they don't bother him. He gets really excited about treats and having dog clothes put on him. He does well in or out of his kennel. Sebastian is a skilled climber so he will climb anything just to stick close to his human.His adoption fee of 150 includes his neuter, microchip, shots up to date of adoption, a month of pet insurance, and a wellness check at our vet within 72 hours of adoption. If you in adopting this boy please download the adoption application found @ katesrescue.org and save it as a word document. After completed you can email the application as an attachment to happydance@katesrescue.org with the header “Sebastian”.

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 150. This little golden boy at abour 3-4 years needs a patient soft person; evidently his last person wasn't so patient. He is afraid of noises, fast movements, objects, rooms. His reaction is to back away and crouch. His foster haven't seen anything like fear biting or aggression, just completely timid. He comes around nicely and seeks affection always cowering, but looking up with hope and love. With time and slow introductions he warms up nicely. He is sweet, crates well, and does well in a car. He is old enough to be calm and not a destroyer of houses, but energetic enough to bounce and run with excitement of the first time he sees you in the morning. He is about 8 pounds, neutered and UTD making him the perfect lap pet. His adoption fee is 150 and includes a month of pet insurance and a wellness check at our vet within 72 hours. If you are interested in possibly giving this darling his forever home please download the adoption application found @ katesrescue.org as a word document and email the completed version to us at happydance@katesrescue.org with “Drake” as the header.
